Three remain in Blackrock scheme
Eden, Blackrock, Cork city
Three homes are still on the market from the most recent phase of Eden, a development in the heart of the fashionable Cork suburb of Blackrock and built on a parcel of land once owned by the Ursuline order of nuns.
The scheme, which is arranged around landscaped courtyards and formal gardens, is just 3km from the centre of the city. It is located near Blackrock village and marina, on the south bank of the River Lee.
Currently available are two three-bed semi-detached homes, each measuring 1,245 sq ft and costing from €365,000. There is also one four-bed version with 1,648 sq ft of accommodation spread out over three floors that's selling for €395,000. As soon as this stock is sold, the selling agent will release the next phase of 20 three-and four-bed homes at Eden.
Eden began life as a high-density scheme back in 2005 before the property crash called a temporary halt to the ambitious project, which had planning for more than 500 units. Unlike the refurbished older apartments, duplexes and townhouses Lisney had marketed a year ago for receivers Grant Thornton, the latest tranche at Eden consists of new-builds with A3 energy ratings and which have been fitted with air-to-water heat pumps.
The facades of the homes feature a mix of brickwork and render, and are complemented by front cobbled driveways with parking space for two cars.
The fitted kitchen is contemporary in style and comes with quartz worktops, upstands and soft-close drawers and doors. Upstairs, the master en-suite and second bedroom have fitted wardrobes with shaker-style doors.
Viewing is by appointment.
